Why subscribe? Is it free?

Subscribe to get full access to the newsletter and website. Never miss an update.

There’s tons of free content coming out every week - including open discussions, sneak peeks at projects in progress, and my most recent work, which will always be published here before it’s published anywhere else. I really look forward to interacting with you and reading your comments!

If you’d like to support me even more, you can become a paid subscriber ($7 a month, $70 a year). By doing that, you’ll have access to all the free content plus colorization tutorials, exclusive timelapse videos, voice memos (to hear my thoughts on some of the stories and the photos that I colorize), book giveaways, contests in which you can get a family photo colorized by me, and more.

You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox.

A quick word about the colorization process

Conscience dictates that before you sit down to colorize a historical photograph, you must do your homework. This is why every colorization goes through long and in-depth research, which, when possible, is supported by the opinions of experts to make sure that the original colors are faithfully reproduced. When possible, each detail is verified: traced via other visual or written sources. Still, when there are no references, artistic decisions need to be made.

Join the crew

Be part of a community of people who share your interests. We love history - the crazy and the heartwarming, books, coffee, dogs, and we occasionally talk about historical butts (Tsar Nicholas’, mainly).
